I've loved music for as far back as I can remember. Motown & AM radio ruled the airwaves in the 60's. My first 45 (that's one of those small, flat, black, circular things with the hole in the middle. You slid down over a fat spindle….what's a spindle ? ….ugh ! ) was Manfred Mann's "The Mighty Quinn", a Bob Dylan cover. My first LP was Paul McCartney's first solo record after the Beatles disbanded, "McCartney". My first cd was Janet Jackson's "Control". I grew up in an urban area of New Jersey and moved out to Northwest Jersey after high school. I missed the Hippie movement & the Fillmore but was right there for the Capitol Theatre, the Ritz and the Punk/New Wave era. Never Disco, Always Rock !

WNTI's Music Memories Series™
My musical tastes obviously make up Dogbites and that taste, is as varied as there is music. I like to
steer it in a continuous flow musically. There is a method or a message to the setlist. I rarely go in
to the studio not knowing how the show will begin and end. The music, regardless of genre, has to have
a beat. That's the only requirement. I span decades & styles. Songs you
may not have heard lately, or ever!! I like obscurity and covers too!! I love the program, I love WNTI
!! There honestly aren't many, if any, radio stations left on the dial that provide an open format like
we do. I've been a part of the WNTI air staff for over 20 years. For most of that time I've been on Saturdays.
The current slot is Saturdays, Noon - 3pm.
Are you ready?
